can this be used on site to take our employees temperatures

Asked by kate June 2, 2020

Answers

No, though it might seem logical, but I’m afraid it doesn’t work very accurately determining body temperature. However, it does work well for what it was designed for(air flow temperature).

Can it be used to take employee's temperature? If so, what is the +/- degree error?

Asked by Doug April 9, 2020

Answer

This is not a medical device advertised for use to accurately measure temperatures of human skin. I would highly caution anyone whom is purchasing this product for such purposes. This device has a fixed emissivity reading value of 0.95 where skin has a reflective value of “roughly” 0.99. To be clear, IR readings of skin have far too many variables that can happen to impact a IR reading such as sweat, sunlight, shadows etc. When measuring the temperature of a human body for fever, one should always use devices approved for such use. The degree range of error for this device could be as much as 5-10 degrees off and should not be used for anything other than maintenance purposes measuring temperature of boilers, exhaust (finding a misfire), etc. Please be responsible and understand the intended use for each device.

Can this product be used to check temperature on humans ?

Answer

This is not a medical device. I highly suggest you take the time to learn about emissivity. Human skin is roughly an emissivity of 0.98 while this device is a fixed emissivity reading of 0.95...Hope this is helpful.

Whats the difference between the 10:1 and the 12:1 thermometer

Asked by Migs January 15, 2017
2
Answers

It's the distance:spot ratio. For the 10:1, every 10" from your target, you'll be measuring a 1" diameter spot. So from 30" away, the 10:1 gun will measure a 3" diameter area. For the 12:1 gun, you can measure the same area from 36" away.

Can you check water temps with these?

Asked by tdell November 11, 2016
1
Answer

I will however, it will not be spot on accurate due to emissivity of 0.98 for water. Additionally, Snow is 0.85 and ice is 0.96 for sake of understanding various different states of H2O. If you are wanting to measure liquids, I would suggest you look into other brands that have probes to determine temperature of liquids.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
This Milwaukee 12:1 infrared temp gun is well built, but is a little lacking on features for what it's currently priced at. They also sell an NIST version for a higher price, which may be more desirable for a professional that requires a certified instrument. The temp gun is pretty intuitive, and I found that I didn't even need to consult the manual to get full functionality out of it. The controls and menus are pretty simple, and the backlit display is easy to read, even at vertical angle offsets - although it washes out or oversaturates pretty quickly when you try to read it from an angle at the side. The laser marker can be turned on or off in the settings, and clearly marks the center of the temperature reading. It would have been nice if there were at least two or three laser points that fanned out at the same rate as the sensor effective area. As it is, I just have to remember that for every foot I am away from the target, the diameter of the sensing area increases by an inch. The temperature range is pretty good, from -22°F to 1022°F. I didn't test it to these extremes, but I did check it with my freezer and stovetop, and managed to give it a workout from 4°F to 669°F. It read a teakettle at 206°F right before it started whistling, so it seems to be pretty accurate too. Emissivity is fixed at 0.95, which poses a problem for accurate readings on shiny surfaces. This can be remedied by placing matte tape on the surface to be measured, but an adjustable emissivity instrument with an auxiliary thermocouple wouldn't need this additional step. Battery life seems to be pretty good, and replacing the 9V battery in the handle is very easy and only requires a flat head screwdriver. Should take 30 seconds max. I really don't see a reason to go with the M12 version of this, since it will just add bulk and weight to the handle. Unfortunately the price to feature ratio this temperature gun offers is pretty high. There seem to be a few other highly rated temperature guns out there for less than half the price of this one that offer more features. The build quality of this instrument is great, and Milwaukee has announced its ruggedness as being able to handle a 6 foot drop test. So I'm not sure if the high price is just for the build quality or maybe just the Milwaukee Red color scheme.

Easy to use; nice feel; difficult packaging and battery installation

There were two problems, right off the bat: 1) the blister pack was exceedingly difficult to open, and 2) the battery was very difficult to install. I had to use a razor blade to cut through the plastic to open the package. Even then, it was difficult to remove. The battery cover has a "lock" which needs to be turned with a flat-head screwdriver or coin to open ; even then, I found it difficult to do. Then, I had difficulty removing the 9-volt battery (which came with the device) connector, and then attaching it to the battery, and then fitting it back into the device. However, once that was accomplished, I found the thermometer very easy to use: Pull the trigger, sight along the laser dot, and read the result (n.b., contrary to the manufacturer's images on Home Depot's product page you can only see a dot at which the device is aimed, not an extended "line"! Granted, it's just for reference, but, some folks might think they'll be able to see it!). I have no scientific equipment to gauge it with, but, it is close to my mercury thermometers' readings. I tested it for its accuracy from multiple distances (see photo), and the reading was virtually the same from 1, 2, and 3 feet away. I found the device useful for finding hot or cold spots along walls, and it even helped me find a gap in an outer wall of my home, which I was able to fill with insulation and then caulk over! Oddly, its readings for my refrigerator and freezer varied, depending on where it was aimed; I didn't expect it to be exactly the same throughout, but, I was surprised to find a range of 5 degrees between shelf levels, and between depths on the same shelf, though it confirmed that the refrigerator's built-in thermometer was accurate! I even used it to find a hole in my car's exhaust system, by noting that most of the pipe from the catalytic converter to the middle of the system was about the same temperature, but, it dropped, drastically, just before the muffler. It turned out to be a dime-sized hole about a foot away from the muffler, which I was able to wrap with sheet metal and clamps, thus saving me a trip to the muffler shop, and, probably, saving me a bundle of money, as well! I also used it to test the boiling point of a pot of water, which I expected to read 212 degrees F, but, it read 190; I'm not sure what to make of that! (i.e., is it the true temp of the water, or is the device off?) I have a much cheaper ($20), no-contact thermometer gun by a different manufacturer, but it doesn't have a laser, and it always reads 1-3 degrees less than the Milwaukee gun. Since exact temperatures aren't important to me, it seems to be a minor point. Also, the software "trigger lock" and "alarm" functions don't have any real use for me (to tell you the truth, I'm not even sure why a "trigger lock" is needed), so I didn't bother testing them. It would have been nice if the device had a loop to which I could have attached a tether to my wrist or tool belt, so I wouldn't have to hold it all the time. In conclusion, this is a very nice device, but, there are cheaper alternatives, and, unless you have a scientifically accurate thermal gauge, accuracy probably isn't important for most people.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
This Temp Gun is "Good" but I'm not sure it's priced right. The temp readings are accurate and the gun is very comfortable to hold. It's relatively small so I can put it in my back pocket (handle down) to carry it around. It also fits neatly and more securely into most tool belts and since it has a reinforced plastic frame and nose bumper it's durable enough to toss around a bit. The 12:1 ratio is good for most applications (1 foot scan 12 feet away). It comes with and runs on a 9V battery which will not last as long as the lithium-ion models. It has typical features like Hi & Lo temp setting alarms and modes like +/- and Avg temp but it does not store multiple temps like some other guns. Also, it does not have an external temp probe or the option to use one. There are only two things that bother me about this gun. The trigger sticks and "boings" when it lets go and the display is uni-directional. It can only be viewed straight on. The Product Description says its "Premium LCD Display", I disagree. Note: the product description also states that it can survive 9 foot drops, but the packaging clearly states 6 foot drops.

This tool is easy to use - there is a door on the front of the handle that you have to open and hook up the 9V battery (provided). Turn it on aim & pull the trigger. You can see the red laser dot in the photo - it measures the surface temperature and the laser is easy to see. The digital readout is easy to read (large LCD numbers) and is consistent with the temperatures I expected to see. The tool is light (but not cheap feeling) and is a nice size for a handheld tool.

Received the laser temperature gun. Very quick shipping from the time I ordered it. Unpacked it and installed the supplied nine volt battery, pulled the trigger to try it out. The laser light shined at the stove pipe I wanted to check the temperature of and the temperature came up on the screen. Pointed it at the stove to check the difference between stove and pipe, this time no laser light to indicate where I was pointing. Tried removing the battery to see if that would work. NO Good. Will be returning it to the store.
